The Lhasa Apsos breed does shed its hair and the breed is known for its thick, lusciously long coat. Some Lhasa Aposos owners prefer to get a "puppy cut," where the fur is cut to resemble the length of fur that the dog had as a puppy.
Getting a puppy cut makes the Lhasa Apsos fur easier to deal with as it does not require daily brushing and does not shed as much. Regardless of whether or not the owner gives the Lhasa Apsos a puppy cut, the hair on the face needs to be trimmed on a weekly basis so that the dog can see correctly. Lhasa Apsos are high maintenance dogs when it comes to grooming and hair care needs.
